Description

Mount Kenya is Africa?s second highest mountain at 5,199m and the highest of all Kenya Mountains. Mount Kenya is roughly circular, about 60km across at the 200mm contour, where the steep font hills rise out of the gentler slopes of the centered highlands. At the centre of the massif, the main peaks rise sharply from around 4,500m to the main summit of Batian 5,199m, Nelion 5,188m and point Lenana 4,985m. Other major summits on the mountain include Point Piggott 4,957m, Point Dutton 4,885 and Point John 4,883m. Of the three Mt. Kenya main peaks (Batian, Lenana and Nelion), only point Lenana can be reached by trekkers and the other two being only for technical climbers.

After the cultivated farmlands on the lower slopes of Mt Kenya, the trails pass through the rain forest, rich in trees of many species but noticeably camphors, then onto a bamboo zone growing to heights of more than 12m or more up through open moor land before reaching the moonscape of higher slopes. The forests on Mount Kenya are rich in wildlife including elephant, buffalo and monkeys with even the moor lands offering a long list of mammals including the rock hyrax, the nearest living relative of the elephant.

Mt. Kenya is an ancient volcanic mountain much older than Mt. Kilimanjaro. Hiking Mount Kenya is believed to have once reached well above 600m. What is left today is volcanic plug which erosion has fashioned into the complex jagged outline of the central peaks.

Amazing, memorable safari.

17 March 2020

Our safari surpassed all expectations. It was planned to suit our needs, with good communication and service in the run up to the trip. The trip itself was superb in every way from beginning to end. ...Laban was an outstanding guide: welcoming, punctual, accommodating and supremely knowledgable, with an uncanny ability to seek out and identify animals and birds. We spotted 80 species of bird in 7 days. He went out of his way to keep us comfortable, took care of everything we needed, and navigated some very challenging flooded roads without problems. We saw every animal we hoped to see, many of them far closer than we expected, and even saw a serval in the middle of the day, which we wouldn't have spotted had it not been for Laban's eagle eyes! The vehicle was completely fit for purpose and kept spotless throughout, and the accommodation exceeded our expectations, with friendly, attentive staff everywhere we went. Our hot air balloon experience is something we will never forget! I would highly recommend Tanzania Kenya safari.

Last November I decided I wanted to celebrate my big 35th birthday with a safari in Tanzania and my dad onboard. I was looking for a father-daughter adventure of lifetime and that's exactly what we got!
